Resources on Faculty/Academic Career


Recommended Posts

Hello All -

I am getting ready to start my PhD program in August and am looking for any resources you may know of on the topic of Faculty/Academia/Academic careers.

Books/Articles/etc. that talk about the realities, what to expect, etc.

Any help here?

Definitely The Chronicle of Higher Education. You may need a subscription or access through your school's proxy server to read, however.

A couple recommended books:

The Academic Job Search Handbook

The Academic's Handbook

I also really like the memoir An Unquiet Mind, by Kay Redfield Jamison.

Happy reading! B)

"Getting What You Came For" is about graduate school (before, during, and after). The internet has made some of its information obsolete (newspaper classified ads? really?) but the advice about networking and such is good. So, not exactly what you're looking for, but I wish I had started reading it before applying, as it gave some good insights about the process.
